By Train and Bus
From Liverpool, hop on a train on the Merseyrail Northern Line and get off at Ormskirk Station. The lines can be reached via the Wirral Line metro system from Liverpool Lime Street, which is the main station serving the city centre – and therefore a convenient stop for those arriving from outside the city.
Upon arrival in Ormskirk you can make the short walk to the local bus station, where the Edge Link bus service will take you out to campus. The EL1 route runs between town and campus every 15 minutes. Timetables can be viewed by clicking here
